While most people will focus on one photo management application, there are 
times where you'll need to account for interoperability:

1. When two or more persons browse/manage the same collection, each may want 
to use a different application. The situation where he uses KDE with native 
KPhotoAlbum and she uses Gnome with native F-Spot is a good example.

2. When testing/migrating to different applications. For example, I recentely 
tried Picasa for Linux on (a backup of) my collection. (Very nice application 
BTW. KPA still beats it in management capabilities though.)

3. When sending photos to family and friends.

I think it would be great to have a standard XML format so that every image 
browser/manager could pickup tags when displaying an image.
